The easy-to-use development environment for JSP authoring automates many development tasks and allows deployment of Web applications to JSP 1.2 compatible servers. A JSP object model duplicates—with minor modifications—the server-side functionality available for PowerDynamo and ASP Web targets, including the 4GL event model extensions for PowerDynamo applications.
PowerBuilder Enterprise only This feature is not available in the Professional and Desktop editions of PowerBuilder.
Like the PowerDynamo Web Site wizard, the JSP Web Target wizard creates a target with Source and Build folders and a deployment configuration. JSP pages are deployed as a Web application in a Web Archive (WAR) file.
The standard HTML elements, controls, and client-side scripts you can add to a Web page that you deploy to PowerDynamo or ASP are also available to JSP pages. In addition, JSP-specific elements are available in the development environment for editing JSP Web pages:
- JSP actions
- JSP scripting elements
- Custom tags
- JSP Web services
